    Any experiences with HISCOX STD-EBS hardshell case?

    Hello,

    I just recently purchased a HISCOX STD-EBS hardshell case to carry around my Stingray 4 and Stingray 5 bass guitars.

    Precision / Jazz / Standard Bass - Hard Case - Hiscox Cases

    It fits my basses very well, just if it was made especially for Stingray 4 & 5...
    I also like that it is less bulkier in comparison to the EBMM hardshell cases. The overall build quality seems to be very good.

    What I'm a little concernded about is:
    the neck rest is only a small area close to below the nut and the inner mould seems to be very hard, covered only with a thin fabric.
    In my Mono Vertigo and Gator ProGo gig bags the basses are cradled in between really soft and thick cushion and I am wondering how the Hiscox will absorb any impact energy with this hard interior.
    The Hiscox guys tell that it will do much better than any kind of gig bag (of course...) but what is the truth?

    Any suggestions and experiences are highly appreciated!

    Best regards
    Durstig

    I’ve been using Hiscox cases for my StingRays now for years. I have the Lightflight Standard. It’s been in constant use for about six years now (all my basses live in a rack I use this case for gigs practices etc so any time a bass leaves the house it goes in this).
    They are one size fits all so what I’ve done is put some extra padding in the case, egg box foam. Some under the headstock, and on the lid in the same place so it holds it snug by the nut/headstock area and also an another tile on the lid aimed at the bridge area along with extra around the body.
    I have just recently acquired a new Hiscox. This time I’ve gone for the PRO.II. not that much more expensive than the base model, extra catch and thicker shell well worth the extra £.
    Hope this helps
